Cooperative Agreements Study Report.
Lawton, R. E.; Magruder, D.
During the 1983 meeting of the Florida Legislature, action was taken to begin a systematic study of the level of cooperation between the Florida public schools K-12 program and the community and junior colleges. The goals and objectives of the Cooperative Agreements Study were to review and compile a list of the cooperative agreements and identify and distribute information about outstanding programs in order to encourage similar innovative programs. Information was gathered through a series of regional meetings held at five different locations in Florida between January and March 1984, during which selected representatives from each school board and community/junior college provided a listing of agreements in effect between their respective institutions. The study found that: (1) 1,892 cooperative agreements were identified, representing 63 different types of agreements; (2) there was a significant variation in the extent to which cooperative agreements existed between different schools and colleges; (3) some agreements were the result of external direction or encouragement from official sources; and (4) there was significant concern about the dual enrollment program as currently implemented, particularly with respect to funding, site requirements, faculty availability and compensation, transportation, and scheduling. The study report includes detailed results by region. (Author/AYC)
